Academic Interests

Behavioral ecologist interested in social behavior, group living, and the evolution of parental care in lizards. I also study sex-determining mechanisms, antipredator tactics, and climate change effects on lizard populations. I collect most of my data in the field, but my research projects generally have laboratory components to conduct trials in controlled environments. I have conducted herpetology studies in Mexico, the US, and Chile.

I am also interested in the curation and management of Natural History Collections. At INHS, I manage and help curate more than 1.3 million specimens preserved among five representative Biological Collections (Fish, Crustaceans, Amphibians & Reptiles, Birds, and Mammals). In my research, I frequently use wet-preserved specimens and their associated data to study reptile natural history and ecology. 

Leadership Positions

INHS Biological Collections representative for The Society for the Preservation of Natural History Collections (SPNHC).
